dancer31220 Posted May 31, 2004 Report Share Posted May 31, 2004 Hi. I have been taking ballet classes for many years now and am consistently progressing. But now my teacher says there is one major thing holding me back: my arms. They are WAY too long! When I stand straight and have my arms just at my sides they reach almost to my knees while most people's hang around mid-thigh. My dance teacher even calls me a gorilla (jokingly of course) because of them sometimes. My arms are also double-jointed, meaning that when I hold them completely straight it looks as if they are bending backwards. I know it sounds strange, but it is true! I know that I need to fix them and I really try to but I don't know how to! If anyone has any advice or personal experiences on this particular subject I would be really grateful to hear them! Thanks! Quote Link to comment
